Detecting progress

My beloved and I are re-watching Columbo episodes from 1971 and really enjoying watching each protagonist collapse under the weight of ‘just one more thing’. The portrayal of many female characters hasn’t gone unnoticed though.

We talked about how some old TV series are full of behaviour that’s unthinkable now, but neither of us really picked up back then.

While there’s so much still to be done, we can recognise progress in tackling inequality. Not that we can rest or be satisfied, of course. I was thinking that in another fifty years we’ll recognise that the progress made then is still but a step on the journey.

The road to equality is long.

We must keep going.
